, the right to vote. the most contentious battles are waged in the swing states of ohio and florida. in miami this weekend voters waited up to nine hours to cast in person absentee ballots only to have election officials shut down the polls because they claimed not enough have resources or staff to be able to complete the job. one voter shut out after waiting two hours with their grandson told the miami herald: after protests and those calls to let us vote, the polls did reopen and people voled until 1:00 a.m. but governor rick scott refused to extend any early voting any further, and wouldn't you know it, the areas with the longest lines, maim dade, orange, palm beach, broward county, all of those counties, shocked i know, lean democratic and they all went for the president in 2008. those voters have to contend with more than just voting regulations and ornery officials. unofficial poll watchers, many trained by the tea party group true the vote, those poll watchers are going into predominantly afarry can american areas searching for fraud. volunteers handing out bottled water to voters who
with 303 electoral votes, florida is still up in the air although the president does have a lead there right now of half of a percentage point. now, it's important to note that obama took nearly every swing state, including colorado, ohio, pennsylvania virginia, and wisconsin. those last three really contributed to his win and to the fact that we were able to call the race relatively early last night. if you remember yesterday, there was speculation that the count could go on for several days in the event of a close race. the popular vote is very close at 50.2% to 48.2, just a difference of two points there but with nearly 100-point spread in the electoral vote, it's really no contest. congressional seats democrats did not gain control of the house, which was to be expected, but they did maintain control of the is that the, picking up seats in indiana and massachusetts, a big win there for elizabeth warren against scott brown. we're still waiting on results from montana and north dakota but departments have the lead right now. the two independents, king from maine and sanders fro
and we are still waiting on an official number from florida. it is obvious the state has not fixed its voting problems. as i'm sure you remember, it was florida 12 years ago causing the legal disaster between vice president al gore and president george bush. the difference this time, no one cares as much. president obama's victory was well secured without florida's 29 electoral votes. but for florida natives this is frustrating and all too familiar. the state's whole voting system is plagued by bad management and dysfunction. it is usually elected officials running the voting process rather than nonpartisan professionals to. make this system more efficient what florida needs now is better access to polling places and more absentee and early voting. >>> it's also affecting the congressional race. g.o.p. representative allen west is now demanding a recount. the election there is still too close to call. west is down just 3,000 votes against his democratic opponent patrick murphy. west is blaming a county supervisor for r

romney finally conceded florida today. florida joins seven other swing states in the blue column. just as vice president al gore predicted here "the war room" on tuesday. well-done, mr. vice president. so for all of you keeping score at home, the final electoral vote tally was 206 for mitt mitt romney. 332 for president obama. that would be a route. i just want to confess i had 303 in our pre-election electoral vote pool so al gore beat me fair and square. today, cbs reported a republican adviser said that actually mitt romney was "shell-shocked" by his loss in florida and his florida adviser today expressed regret, telling the "miami herald"... >> jennifer: well, he isn't the only one looking forward to the next fight. washington insiders are ready to rumble over the fiscal cliff and how to keep the country from careening over it, for a sense of what's at stake let's just take a tiny peek over the edge. if congress cannot reach a deal, every tax cut that was enacted since the year 2001 would expire. most importantly th

tonight takes us as it so often does to florida. john metz, owner of 40 denny's restaurants says that he's going to add a 5% obamacare surcharge to his customer's bills and this, of course, comes on the heels of pizza owner papa john's similar obamacare protest adding money cost to his pizzas. i'm actually kind of curious to see how this is going to play out. when diners are presented with an oversized bill, they're going to complain for sure. they're just not usually going to complain about the president of the united states. just sayin'. the signatures have been counted and it appears there is scant support for states to leave our union and go their separate ways. but don't worry. our brett ehrlich is still making plans on how to help those states out so shh brett's talking now. >> well, america, it was fun while it lasted. but after president obama's victory last week, all 50 states have formally petitioned to secede from the union.
